Use this command to enable the creation of a shortcut route; the resolution and establishment of a shortcut route is triggered when an NHRP Traffic Indication packet is received.

Note: You still need to use routing protocol or have static routes to the hub node in your NBMA network. NHRP does not advertise routes; creates a shortcut route only for an already routable subnet.

Use the set form of this command to enable the creation of a shortcut route.

Use the delete form of this command to remove the shortcut configuration.

Use the show form of this command to display the shortcut configuration.
